Today Microsoft released Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17127 for PC to insiders in the fast ring. Like the previous build, they continue to iron out issues with Windows Mixed Reality, but also includes improvements to Cortana.
With this release, Microsoft added some improvements to Cortana such as a new profile page and tips for skills in the Cortana Notebook.
The new server-powered profile page allows you to add your favorite places, which will then be used to give you traffic updates or set reminders when you leave or arrive at your places.
Cortana Notebook skills have also been improved by including tips for various skills such as Weather, Sports, and News. These tips provide examples of questions you can ask Cortana in relation to that particular skill.
